Following his sold-out U.K. European tour, Ben Howard will return stateside confirming a run of headlining North American dates this fall. The tour stops at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on October 1st and will be in support of his forthcoming record Noonday Dream. Tickets are on-sale now at http://benhowardmusic.co.uk/live/.
The new music has begun to receive widespread critical praise—The Independent proclaims, “‘A Boat To An Island On The Wall’ is a sprawling, mesmerizing track that shifts restlessly, rocking back and forth like that small boat on the waves, with the familiar sound of Howard’s low, gruff vocals,” while Paste adds, “This seven-minute single [‘A Boat To An Island On The Wall’] features Howard harmonizing with himself, as ambient chords slowly ease the quiet song into a grungy guitar riff.” NYLON furthers, “Press play and let this cinematic gem wash over you.” Noonday Dream is out June 1 on Republic Records.
